Hexstatic. They're great aren't they? The first two albums (Rewind and Masterview) were brilliant - fun, innovative and generally superb.

This new offering seems to be a total departure from their earlier work. For example, most of the tracks have lyrics - what on earth made them think that lyrics would be a good idea? Perhaps we're supposed to be so startled that we don't notice that the quirkiness (the cornerstone of their previous work) has all but vanished. It's not even as if the lyrics are any good, but that's irrelevant. If I want lyrics, I'll buy something other than Hexstatic.

For me, the only saving graces are Tokyo Traffic, Newaves and Bust, but even these have little in common with the former Hexstatic; they just happen to be good tracks in a wilderness of banal rubbish. Some of it even sounds like the kind of lazy money-spinning R'n'B that seems to dominate the airwaves of popular radio stations.

Don't be fooled by any pretentious nonsense written about this album. If you liked the first two releases, don't spoil them by buying this one. A terrible disappointment.

Let's get this straight - Hexstatic know what they're doing. They're probably the most technically adept audio-visual act in the world. Surprisingly, and unlike their previous 2 albums, this one does not come with a CD-Rom or DVD with videos for the all the tracks. I can only presume that they want the audience to see the videos for these tunes for the first time at their live shows (including The Big Chill in August). What this serves to do, though, is make you concentrate on the music here - and this is OK as musically it's a strong album, although possibly less varied than the last record 'Master-View'. Fans of the last record and their hip-hop/funk flavoured material may be surprised and maybe even disappointed, but fans of electro (old school or house varieties) will be stoked, as that's the predominant vibe here. Standout tracks are openers 'Red Laser Beam' - an electro-funk classic with it's robot vocal and insistent beat and 'Roll Over' with it's silky soul vibe - like Goldfrapp meets 4hero. The album is a bit samey, though, until track 6, the excellent 'TLC', a chilled and uplifting tune with a stuttering jazz break, before we're back to the electro-funk again. 'Subway' is also standout track from the second half of the album, with it's retro 80's vibe and socially-conscious rap that had me thinking of 'The Message' and also those house/hip-hop crossover tunes like the Club Groove mix of Twin Hype's 'For Those Who Like To Groove'. These old-school vibes continue later with the superb 'Newaves' which is crying out to be mixed with 'Looking For The Perfect Beat' by Afrika Bambaata. Closing track 'Bust' is an aboslute stormer destined to blow any dancefloor apart with it's orgasmic female moans, old-school male 'Yeah's and synth sweep/blasts.Read more ›

The most disappointed I've been with a Ninja Tune artist release since probably forever - couldn't wait to pass this on to someone who doesn't mind lame-assed rnb/nusoul stylings interfering with the 3 decent-ish tracks on this album.
Not even any visuals to redeem this.
AVOID.

As one of the previous guys mentioned, the other Hexstatic albums are great! This is completely repetitive, boring rubbish. I have heard of people having an 'off day' but having an enitre off album is a pretty poor show. Come on guys, must do better next time!

Lots of warm, fuzzy tones dominate this enjoyable album by Hexstatic. As pointed out by DJ Roach, there's less breakbeats here, but the tunez work well and it's nice to see artists popular in a given style have the confidence to branch out. I prefer the female vocal tracks to the male ones, though I should add that I like all the tracks on the record. There's plenty of magic moments, imaginative tones and melodies, interesting interplays and phat sounds. A touch of erotica, and (pleasingly), a continuation of those retro video games samples.

I've come back to update my review, as I am more and more into this record the more I play it. I really like how there's subtlety and substance to the tunez, rather than really obvious things hitting you right away; there are catchy elements, but lots of nicely placed and interesting melodies which work their way into your mind as you uncover, with repeated listens. The vocal tracks such as Roll Over (it's just brilliant) and Prom Night Party have more depth than you first realise, and in general it's all just tastefully done yet with Hexstatic's usual quirkiness.

You'd have to be a 'standard crash test' dummy not to enjoy this album!
